I just finished a book set in the late 18th Century about a Physician’s Apprentice. I have been telling people it’s as if Johnny Tremain and Emma Woodhouse had a book baby together.

Brodi Ashton, who helped me write my query, says it’s 127 Hours meets Hamilton!

This handsome young man to the right is close to what I imagine my main character looks like right before all hell breaks loose in his life.

Celebrate Every Day

This book idea came to me in the very earliest stages of my writing endeavors. I was a huge Martha Stewart fan, but in my early twenties, I didn’t have a lot of money for entertaining friends. So instead I thought it might be cool to entertain my own family. That’s what this book is about—not giving all the good stuff to the neighbors, but creating lasting memories with your loved ones around food, books, and music.

It’s still easily available on amazon, but is getting harder to find through independent sellers. My preferred bookseller, however, is The King’s English. If you would like a signed copy from The King’s English, please make a note in your order. Please allow several weeks for delivery.

This one’s a middle grade ghost story. I got the idea when Matt and I were in the Peak District in England and staying in a Georgian home that had an early 17th Century carving over the fireplace in our room.

We’re pretty sure the house was haunted.

I am also working on some contemporary YA as well as a series of transitional picture books.
